Algiers in detail


There's no shortage of cheap fast food around town and excellent bread and pastries from ubiquitous bakeries. Good seafood restaurants can be found along the Rampe de la Pêcherie near the port, as well as in the beach suburbs to the west. Most of city's more upmarket eating options are in leafy Hydra.

Many restaurants are closed on Friday, although a few reopen in the early evening.
